Moscow Exchange (MOEX), the biggest Russian venue for trading currencies and derivatives, today announced the start of provision of new FAST gate feeds for MOEX Board, OTC market, Ukrainian and ETS exchanges.
The new solution was developed as a part of “Moscow Exchange Unified Trading Platform” project. It is based on the same technologies used at present for Equities and FX market platform and allows clients to use all standard market data distribution protocol functionality at minimum latency.
We cannot skip the fact that brand new FAST gate is optimized for high-frequency trading (HFT). That is important because it underlines MOEX’s endeavors to improve its technological infrastructure and to offer its clients and partners some cutting-edge products.
The launch of the new FAST gate feeds also marks an important step in the development of MOEX Board, the indicative quotation system that the Moscow Exchange rolled out in December 2014.
The new version of the FAST interface is available on production environment along with the current sources, so that users can receive market data using either of them. The old sources are poised to be discontinued after May 29, 2015.
